    ...for not being able to send an e-mail or use a computer.

    Obama's New Ad Strikes A New Low

    Ho ho,funny eh?

    Except when you find out that the reason McCain doesn't do these things is because the war time injuries he suffered in the service of his country stop him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes

    So...what do we have to say about a presidential candidate who approved something like this? What does it tell us about his humanity, and more importantly, his judgment?

    If this is what the Obama campaign means by more forceful attacks, I say bring it on. America is getting to know the Chosen One better with every day that passes.

    Yeah, I can't see this one playing well either.

    Too bad.

    All I have to say about this one is, I don't think that in their partisan freenzy they gave that fact much weight. It's a lame attempt to make him seem out of touch. To me if I were the McCain campaign I would point that our and show him going up to a person on a computer, and saying "sorry I would type you a message , but my arms were both broken when I was in a POW camp, so let me shake your hand instead" So much for the "hope and change" message.

    Funny that the Leftists just steer fucking clear when Ninja comes around with the TRUTH.

    Props to Caligirl for being intellectually honest, a true rarity from her side of the aisle I'm afraid.

    Are you saying that McCain doesn't have a single finger on either hand that he can type on a keyboard with?:confused:

    Sounds like he belongs in a nursing home instead of the White House. :D

    From what I can find on thru google John McCain's only impairment from his war time injuries is that he can't raise his hands above his head. The same is true of many people. There's nothing about his fingers being injured. He doesn't try to hold the keyboard above his head does he?

    Hey, most people his age do not use computers. The wingers may try to capitalize by making more out his injuries than are real, but it seems that he's just an old goat that isn't interested in using a computer. The same is true of my Dad.

    I don't think that using a computer should be a criteria for the Presidency, but I does show that he's a bit out of touch with the times.

    Naturally the "compassonate progressives" continue to mock.

    Then, as the pattern has been seen several times already, as the public recoils at Obama's latest misstep and drops another 3 points the same people will flail, "That's not what he meant! That's not what he meant!"

    Typing requires having your arms oustretched for a period of time, which McCain can't do. He can't lift his arms past his shoulders AT ALL. He can stretch them out, but holding them out long enough to even write is painful. Typing is pretty much impossible for him.

    I think if he can't use a computer or send a email because of his injuries as a POW then I'm pretty sure this ad will backfire on Obama. If those are the reasons he can't do those things, then I think he should scrap the Ad.

    However, the part about the economy can't be excused by his time as a POW.

    Not being able to use a computer or send a email (though the thought to me seems a bit odd) is one thing. Not knowing the economy when your running for POTUS is another.

    When McCain came back from Vietnam, he cheated repeatedly on his crippled wife, and then divorced her to marry Cindy Hensley. In the 1980's McCain lobbied for Charles Keating, the saving and loan felon who stole billions in pension money, and took numerous jet set vacations at Keating's expense. In the 1990's McCain had an affair with a lobbyist that so scared his staff, that they told her to stay away from him. His campaigns for the Senate were all financed with his wife Cindy's mob money. In 1994 Cindy McCain forged prescriptions in the names of her employees and stole drugs from her own charity. McCain's campaign this year is getting huge amounts of oil company money. His pick for vice president is under an ethics investigation and will probably be indicted on Oct 31st. McCain is 72 years old, has had cancer 5 times and is on 5 different medications. He is so out of it, that his staff will no longer let him talk to the press unscripted.
